Today is Marc's 45th birthday. Since we didn't get snowed in after all, he wanted to go to lunch and a movie.
We went to Pizzeria 712, which is pretty much our favorite local restaurant.
Your meal always starts with this beautiful freshly-made pita bread and hummus.
We had the butternut squash/caramelized onion/gorgonzola/rosemary pizza and the sausage fennel pizza, which I found out is Marc's favorite. (I prefer the squash one. Or the potato one, which wasn't on the menu today.) So good.
We went to see 127 Hours. It wouldn't have been my choice, but the birthday boy got to choose. I actually liked it quite a bit. James Franco did an amazing job of carrying the whole movie. It also gave me things to think about. I just don't know that I have that kind of survival instinct.
After we came home, Marc went to work on his current photography project.
I made the frosting(s) for his cake and started dinner. We had what is possibly my favorite meal (fortunately, he really likes it, too!):
zesty lemon chicken (if you only try one of the recipes on my recipe blog, I think it should be this one)
broccoli with blue cheese (loooove it)
chocolate peanut butter cake
Gifts received: Paul Smith London cologne, new workout shorts, local Amano chocolate, and a carpet cleaning scheduled for Tuesday.
Eva made a 45 sign for his cake since I told her we couldn't have 45 candles. This cake is so so rich, I don't know if I can have another piece!
While I was putting Eva to bed and doing the dishes, Marc and Max had a Battlestar Galactica marathon.
I hope Marc had a great day. And it's almost like he didn't get a year older, since he thought he was turning 45 last year!
